The Olympic Symbol was lit up in Tokyo Bay on Tuesday after they were removed for maintenance four months ago, shortly after Tokyo Olympics were postponed until next year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The five Olympics rings were re-installed earlier in the morning. The rings — painted blue, black, red, green, and yellow — are gigantic. The rings will be lit at night and herald the coming of the Tokyo Olympics, which are to open on July 23, 2021, followed by the Paralympics on Aug. 24.
The reappearance of the rings is the latest sign that organizers and the International Olympic Committee are increasingly confident that 15,400 Olympic and Paralympic athletes can safely enter Japan in 2021.
